I never understood why society always feels the need to demonize one body type to lift up another.
today my 13-year-old sister excitedly announced “Christmas is getting closer!”
to which I, being the spoilsport that I am, told her that four months from now really isn’t that close
"well, it’s closer than it was yesterday!"
and I don’t know what possessed me to say this but the first thing that came to mind was “you know what else is closer than it was yesterday? death”
she looked so horrified
still laughing about yesterday during gender/sexuality studies class when our professor had everyone chant “VAGINA! PENIS! VAGINA!” a few times to make us more comfortable with saying those terms
and this girl just stands up slowly and says “…this… this isn’t math class…”
imagine banana with any other vowel
